One thing we\u2019ll be doing this winter will be making quilts for lady veterans.\r\n\r\n\u201cWere learning and sharing ideas. It's like an old- fashioned quilting bee. It's not just about quilting, but it's also socializing and having fun.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe always have a good time,\u201d member Carol Swiger said, \u201cand we\u2019d love to have new members!\u201d\r\n\r\nCranberry Piecemakers meet at McClintic Library in Marlinton the first Thursday of every month at 1 p.m. \r\nNew members are welcome.
